Kafer digital thickness gages

Kafer digital thickness gages use state-of-the-art Swiss made (Sylvac) digital indicators. These thickness gages are described in detail on separate pages of this website. The information shown here can help make it easier to identify the type of gage you'll need. Click on any linked model number to see the relevant page.

Being digital, with SPC output, these gages can switch between inch and metric readings. Larger jaw depths are not available for digital gages. You will want to consider dial thickness gages for that purpose.

For more information on any model refer to page 96.

To place an order, click on the linked model numbers (shown in brown). Because of fluctuations in currency exchange rates, prices are subject to frequent change. You may want to inquire first. Please allow a minimum of 4 weeks for delivery.

Some notes on accessories for digital thickness gages listed above:

While the thickness gage frames and anvils are manufactured by Kafer in Germany, the digital indicator is Swiss-made Sylvac, one of the most sophisticated and highly respected digital gages available. This indicator has RS232 output and comes with thorough and complete operating instructions in English.

  • RS232 data collection cable (optional) DCMD232 ... $181.00

The indicator has a data hold feature. If you press this button, the numbers on the display freeze so that you can move the thickness gage if it's in an awkward position and you can easily see the measurement. Releasing the button will clear the display.

Optional table stand is about 100 mm wide and allows you to use the gage free-standing (see photo below), leaving both of your hands free for measuring. It will fit on any of the size 50 mm throat depth or size 100 mm throat depth models, regular or digital. It can not be used on larger thickness gages. Retrofitting onto older modles is possible. The stand can be ordered with or without a thickness gage.

  • Stand 2.1670 (when ordered together with a gage from this page) ... $140.00 order now
  • Stand 2.1670 (when ordered without a gage from this page) ... $172.40 order now

The digital indicator shown above has a convenient thumb-operated lifting lever. If your indicator has a 30 mm (1-inch) range, it will require a slightly longer lifting lever: part 4.0065. This new style lever can replace the complicated scissor-style lever that mounted on the backs of some older models. Just remove the old lever and clamp the new style over the upper bushing (see photo on left).

You will find that the anvils no longer close as a result (photo on right) and this is remedied by installing an 8 mm long contact point only if you have a spherical point installed. Part #MTC44-09 will do the trick nicely. Do no dismantle the indicator from the frame. Simply unscrew the old point and insert the new.

  • 4.0065 new style lifting lever for gages with 1-inch range ... $34.50 ... order now
  • MTC44-09 spherical contact point (8 mm long, metric thread) ... $19.50 ... order now
